Lemon-Aid Day on Kitsap Color Classic at set locations
Over the last year West Sound Academy middle school students have been learning the ins and outs of business ownership with the intention of conducting the first Lemon-Aid Day event in the North Kitsap region. In Partnership with Cascade Bicycle Club, hosts of the annual Kitsap Color Classic bicycle tour, the students will set up Lemon-Aid Day stands along the bike route selling lemonade to riders and spectators. Proceeds from the sales of their organic lemonade will be given to the charity or charities of the student’s choice. Check your route map for locations.
Cascade Bicycle Club offers an extensive Free Group Rides program that can help you get ready for your favorite weekend event. You can design your own personal training program by selecting the daily rides that fit your schedule and ability.
